Natasha Mann

Decorative Painting

Biography

My work is inspired by Moroccan decorative painting and geometric patterns. All my work is made using natural pigments with egg tempera and 24 carat gold leaf on wood.

Natasha is an artist who uses traditional methods to create bespoke pieces for interiors and fine artworks. Her work is predominantly inspired by traditional Moroccan architectural painting on wood, known as Zouaq painting. She studied this form of Moroccan decorative painting during a year long apprenticeship with a Master in Fez in 2007. All her pieces are made from natural materials, using hand ground pigments mixed with egg tempera and 24 carat gold leaf. Her  geometric designs are all hand drawn using a compass and ruler. She creates decorative paintings for interiors such as panels, murals and ceiling designs; small decorative objects such as boxes and lamps; and individual framed paintings and drawings. 
 
Natasha holds a degree in Arabic and French from The University of Cambridge, an MA in Spanish and Moroccan Medieval Art from the Courtauld Institute of Art and an MA from the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts, which was funded by the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST)
